"Russian artist Anatoly Vyatkin installed a giant replica of a Cyrillic QWERTY keyboard made of 86 stone blocks, each weighing up to 1,000 pounds."

"The Keyboard Monument (which in some circles also goes by the name 'Claudia') is a permanent outdoor sculpture located in Yekaterinburg, Russia, where it remains a prominent tourist attraction."

"The landmark, which was designed to mimic an IBM PC keyboard, incorporates a piece of technology into the natural landscape, promoting the idea of integration and inviting passersby to interact with it. Pedestrians in the area often find themselves playfully hopping onto the 'keys' of the installation, despite knowing it serves no immediate function."


"The installation provides a whimsical bit of art for the public that is still very relevant. It will be interesting to see how future generations perceive it once keyboards have become obsolete."
